A car accident in Tarzana on Monday, involving a total of seven automobiles, caused the death of one woman and numerous car accident injuries to other people involved in the crash. The crash occurred near the intersection of Ventura Blvd. and Corbin Ave., which is near where Tarzana and Reseda meet.
The woman who passed away as a result of the Tarzana car accident was not identified by the Los Angeles Times. According to investigators, it appears that speed may have been a factor in this multi-vehicle collision. The LAPD said that a Ford Taurus was probably the cause of the collision, as it collided with numerous vehicles. The Ford Taurus driver, who was also injured in the collision, was hospitalized as a result of the accident injuries.
In a case like this, the family of the Tarzana wrongful death victim should immediately contact a local wrongful death lawyer who can help recover wrongful death damages from all responsible parties. Typically, the first source for such a recovery would be the auto insurance liability coverage of the responsible party or parties. It will first be necessary to determine who was at fault, then the attorney will have to locate the applicable coverage and seek the maximum monetary recovery for the heirs of the deceased.
In wrongful death and other serious injury claims, often the responsible party does not have enough liability insurance coverage to meet the extensive damages suffered as a result of the accident. In case of a situation such as this, it is very important to have as much uninsured motorist coverage as possible. This will cover you in case the person responsible does not have insurance or does not have enough insurance to cover your damages.
